The Linus Connection is a Central Texas 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to make and deliver handmade security blankets for children in crisis situations in our area. Our blankets go to children in hospital emergency rooms, in crisis centers, in foster care, shelters, and to any child who is in need of a little extra security in their lives.

The Linus Connection has worked closely with our Recipient Facilities over the years to come up with guidelines for making the best blankets possible for the children that receive them. Please take a few minutes to read through theBlanket Specifications and print a copy for yourself. Blanket Specifications includes General Blanket Guidelines (sizes, etc.), Quilts, Quilt Tops, Yarn Blanket, and Fleece Blankets.
